This cabin may appear rustic on the outside but don't let that fool you! This cabin was built in 1915, however the interior was remodeled in 2005 with beautifully finished 1 x 12 plank knotty pine floors, walls, and ceilings. Some of the existing beautifully finished cedar paneled walls still remain in the living room. This Totem cabin sleeps up to 6 persons comfortably. There is a master bedroom with custom queen log bed, 3/4 bath with over-sized shower (no tub), full size fully stocked kitchen with stainless fridge plus stainless gas range, large open floor plan, custom knotty pine breakfast bar & bar stools for seating up to 7, plus a table and seating for 3 in the kitchen nook, with a beautifully crafted stone fireplace and wood stove, plus two futons in the roomy living room with space to convert into two full size beds. Several skylights and open floor plan make this cabin light, open and airy! Semi-secluded in beautiful timber, with a tranquil stream bubbling through the front of the property, a flat parcel on almost an acre with an additional second cabin at the rear of the property. The cabin exterior comes with covered parking space, gazebo with propane BBQ, deck chairs, marshmellow roasting pit, oversized picnic table, and hiking trails through the property with two small bridges over the small streams. The Totem is located on a quiet dead end road, but this property fronts highway 706 so has easy access, and only 1/2 mile from Mt Rainier National Park. This the main Nisqually gate to Longmire and Paradise that is open 365 days a year. So roads are kept accessible year round.
1 bedroom, 1 bath cabin along mountain stream, sleeps 6

About Rick or Theresa Cooper
We love this area! It is our playground for hiking, snowshoeing, backpacking, sledding, fishing, photography, wildlife viewing, etc.
Rick or Theresa Cooper purchased this Cabin in 2010
Why Rick or Theresa Cooper chose Ashford
Mt Rainier National Park is a beautiful any season park to enjoy, and this cabin is just .5 miles from the entrance. It is also within walking distance of our other cabin, The Cornerstone cabin, so that we can use all three units for our family reunions or other large gatherings, and recommend that to others as well.
What makes this Cabin unique
We absolutely enjoy sitting in the gazebo under the beautiful timber, next to the tranquil stream burbling through the yard, watching the deer meander through for their morning and evening drinks. We love the stone fireplaces, they are absolutely beautiful! So cozy to curl up in front of the fire on snowy or rainy days after a good hike in the park! The Totem cabin is our favorite for our own large groups with children as it has a wonderful open floor plan with lots of room for children to play.

Excellent base for Mt. Rainier vacatoin
The Totem Cabin was everything we expected. We definitely recommend it.
Perfect for Rainier
Charming, rustic. Wood stove brought much warmth. Perfect location for Rainier!
Great location by entrance gate but needs upgrades
Pros: Great location and cute. Bed good. Lots of cookware. Lots of movies and books, although we didn’t use them. Near restaurants which had wifi. Saw a deer with a large rack at the back of the property near the creek.
Cons: Electrical needs upgrade as it went out several times, especially with the canned lighting in the entry. Also, the showers weren’t hot; lukewarm at best, sometimes cold. New plumbing?
No thermostat heating. Electric radiator heater helpful. Could use two of them as we couldn’t build a fire due to smoke allergies.
Just a few steps to the park
Great cabin in the woods close to Mt. Rainier National Park. It was a great place to shower and relax after a long day of exploring the park. The movie selection was a nice surprise. Kids were kept busy with the toys and nice fire pit out front. The stream by house also provided some entertainment. It was a great family experience!
all of the reviews are accurate. very nice cabin, great bed, and a nice fairly private area in the front of the house with a fire pit. perfect for exploring the area. the only real negative was that you can hear the cars pass on the main road near by, but from what i researched it was a bit more private than other cabins in the area.
The perfect location and place to stay when hiking in Mt Rainier National Park!
Literally 1/2 mile rom the entrance! Loved the gazebo and the picnic area. Home has everything you need. The cabin was super clean and easy to find. FYI - No wifi and groceries are lacking in the area so bring what you need!
Thank you for taking the time to review our cabin!
Located 1/2 mile from Mt Rainier National Park with hiking trails, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, sledding, water falls, lakes and streams to photograph and enjoy!
